The Institute for Environmental Studies at TCU
TCU’s Institute for Environmental Studies (IES) is a collaboration between departments, institutions, government, and private businesses that create a unique educational experience. Our research, teaching and partnerships produce integrated solutions to local and global environmental issues.
The Institute’s programs emphasize stewardship through field-based projects that involve real problems. Partnerships with environmental non-profits, law firms and businesses bring current issues into class. Students gain a well-rounded understanding of ethical, political, economic and social perspectives framing environmental concerns, which prepares them to become competent scientists and responsible leaders.
